This amazing pin was designed by contemporary designer jeweler, Robert Sorrell, exclusively for Lush Life Antiques. Mr. Sorrell's pieces have been featured in the runway collections of Thierry Mugler, as well as in a number of theater productions including Cirque de Soleil. The pin measures 5 1/4" long x 3" wide and stands almost 1" thick at the center bullet cabochon. This piece is a slight departure from Robert's usual work and was loosely based on earlier pieces made by Schreiner of New York. It has a vibrant contrast of translucent purple stones and opaque turquoise glass. It has a rich gold tone setting and the reverse is signed "Robert Sorrell". Please see my other listings for the matching chandelier earrings.
